Carolyn Hider, AMFTMental Health Counselor

Bust shot of the co-founder who provide counseling and education around mental health issues for first responders.

Your kiddo, your teenager, the one you love so much, is struggling and you don't know what to do! You weren't given a handbook, you may have had incredible parents or parents who showed you what not to do. But right now, you, with your kid, you don't know how to help. Maybe they are distant, maybe they have been hurt. Maybe they talk to you about everything, or nothing at all. Maybe they hurt you, or are angry at the world. You just know that you can't keep going like this. You want them to live a full, joyful life someday, you just aren't sure how to make it happen. This is where I come in!
I can help your child or teen grow into their full potential. Working with me, you will see your loved one become who they were meant to be, finding peace and harmony in their life, body and soul. You will feel connected and close with your child again! I will be there, supporting them and guiding you to build the bond you long for!
Let me help you find that peace, healing and pride in parenting. Not only will your kiddo be loving life again, but you will be rocking it as a parent! Through virtual sessions, I am able to be flexible with your schedule and meet your kiddo where they are at.
